Lee Friedlander is the first photographer to make the car an actual “form” in his book America by Car. Over the past decade, Lee drove across nearly 50 states documenting his journey from the view out of the front, side and rear windows of his rental cars. The result is 200 beautiful black and white images that capture our country’s eccentricities and obsessions at the turn of the century. If you happen to be in New York City, you’ll have to check out his exhibit at The Whitney early this Fall.
This sounds so cool. There is another artist who did something similar. I forget his name right now, but he drove around snapping pictures of the rear ends of trucks. “Truck butts”, if you will. HAHA! If I remember his name, I’ll come back & post it. 🙂
I love Lee Frielander, one of my favorite photographers!
